Route 50 Bike & Pedestrian Improvements (Blake Ln to Prosperity Ave)

The proposed bike/pedestrian improvements along Arlington Blvd. (Route 50) will enhance pedestrian and bicycle access, mobility and safety from Blake Lane to Prosperity Avenue. A total of seven projects are included in this initiative, providing approximately 2,300 feet of 10 foot wide asphalt shared use path, 1,000 feet of 5 foot concrete sidewalk, two pedestrian bridge stream crossings, ADA curb ramps and bus pads. These projects are scheduled to start construction in Summer and Fall of 2022. Schedules will be updated as the projects receive final approvals and the necessary land rights for construction. The initiative is funded through Fairfax County Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Tax funds.
